From today, Sky Sports 1 - temporarily re-branded Sky Sports The Open - has moved back to channel 401 undoing an unpopular change that saw Sky Sports News HQ move to the top of the sports channels a couple of years ago.
Sky viewers can now see Sky Sports channels in the following positions:
- 401 Sky Sports 1 (Sky Sports The Open)
- 402 Sky Sports 2
- 403 Sky Sports 3
- 404 Sky Sports 4
- 405 Sky Sports 5
- 406 Sky Sports News HQ
- 407 Sky Sports F1
HD viewers will see the HD versions of these channels in the above positions.
A new sports channel for all Sky TV viewers - Sky Sports Mix - is in the pipeline. It will offer a sample of sporting coverage for those who don't currently subscribe to the Sky Sports service. Further details about the channel are expected to be released soon.
